Quigley to Set Consecutive-Event Skein


Dana Quigley will set a Senior Tour record this week when he tees it up in the Bruno's Memorial Classic.
Quigley will play the 178th straight tournament for which he has been eligible at the tounament near Birmingham, Ala. The appearance will also mark his 164th straight Senior Tour event. Both are Senior Tour records.
He only came close to missing two tournaments in the streak. His daughter's high school graduation was three years ago, but Quigley played Friday at the tournament in Nashville, chartered a plane and flew to the graduation Friday night, then flew back on the charter to play Saturday and Sunday.
Another time he almost took the advice of Bob Rotella, who is a sports therapist, and missed a tournament in Indianapolis. He promised he would finally miss an event, but changed his mind at the last minute and flew to the tourney.
'I was scared to death to tell Rotella or have him see my name in the paper,' said Quigley.
Quigley last missed a tournament in 1997. He will break the record of Mike McCullough, who played in 177 straight events.
